Domestic Violence Month: May

Each May, Queensland marks Domestic and Family Violence Prevention Month to raise community awareness of domestic and family violence and to send a clear message that violence of this sort will not be tolerated.

Each year Community organisations run events, projects or activities during May that; Rraise awareness about the occurrence and impacts of domestic and family violence in the community and provide information about help available, Promote partnerships and collaboration across the community in acting to prevent domestic and family violence, Engage and educate communities to create a community that supports respectful relationships, practices positive attitudes and behaviours and promotes a culture of non-violence and Challenge communities to consider their attitudes towards domestic and family violence and recognise that a whole of community response is needed to make a difference.

The Special Taskforce on Domestic and Family Violence in Queensland in its ‘Not Now, Not Ever’ report recommended that individuals, community groups and the private sector work together to help prevent domestic and family violence and support those affected.
